.5 million this quarter. almost 50% of our business in north america is mobile. we're focused on migrating from being a daily deal e-mail business to being a true e-commerce marketplace where we now have over 54,000 deals live every day in north america. and we're focused on taking what's working in north america where we saw 23% growth in q1 accelerate to 30% in q2. and really give that to the rest of the world. we're by no means done. we've got a long way to go. >> now, you're alluding to the fact that though you have seen significant growth in the u.s., there is still significant weakness internationally. what's your plan to get the rest of the world on track? >> i mean, we saw some good improvement this quarter. europe shrank 8% year over year in q1. and that accelerated to 4% growth in q2. so that's pretty significant growth. we're now focused on taking the stuff that works. we know when we bring more deals to the market it has a huge effect. when we can get consumers to basically start with groupon when they want to buy anything anywhere, any time, we know that has a huge impact. and
republicans don't do enough is give an alternative. we need to start telling the people of america what our health care alternative is and we've yet to do that. >> bob, there's no accountability as we've been saying about other issues because of hyper partisan districts. if i'm a gop member of the house and rail against obama care and say let's defund the government, et cetera, et cetera, and maybe public surveys across the country say that individual is out of step, chances are they're not out of step in their own district. >> i think that's true. one of the problems the republican party has now is that it rode the tea party to power in the house in 2010 and now stuck with all those people. i think john is largely right about what sensible republicans want to do. i'm not sure he's right about the ways out. but you have a whole group of folks who might just take this over the cliff. if boehner holds to the rule that he has to have a majority of the majority before he'll bring anything to the floor, you might just have a government shutdown. and sensible people in the republican party like j

. america live starts right now. >> starting with the fox news alert. a big opening blast on what is described as the potential coming war over who gets to vote. welcome everybody to america live and so there are debates breaking out over how our elections should be held and what rules will be in place when it comes to voting. the issue erupted after the supreme court went down and that gave a bit more power to set their own rules on these things and that ruling sparked protest and drew sharp criticism from the justice department and former secretary of state addressed the issue at an event that many will be a 2016 presidential run for her. >> we have seen a sweeping effort in our country to obstruct new obstacles to voting. under cover and addressing election fraud. in 2013, so far, more than 80 bills restricting voting rights are introduced in 31 states. not every obstacle is to race. but those who say racial is not a problem in the election must not be paying attention. >> that is from hillary clinton. >> our host of power play. chris. chris, is this the makings of a battle tha

for something other than power generation and our gas grills. nat gas is cheaper in north america than anywhere else on earth. which is why i've been on a crusade for anything using natural gas as fuel for surface vehicles. and we need chart industries, gtls, gas to liquids. chart makes the precision engineer cryogenic equipment, allowing it to be used for fuel for trucks, they also make engine tanks that hold stuff for heavy duty tanks and an industrial gas business and a biomedical division where they make liquid oxygen therapy doing tremendously. the stock has been on fire, it's up 200%, it's a triple since i got behind it in february of 2011, up 20% since we last interviewed the ceo at the end of may. the company reported strong quarter on july 30th. let's check in with samuel thomas, the president and ceo of chart industries, find out more about his prospects. welcome back to "mad money." good to see you, sam. >> good to see you. >> i've got a ton to ask you. but first, what the heck is this boost behind us? >> jim, this is a self-contained filling station for lng, also can be used for nat

countries, north ameri america, northern europe. emerging markets continue to struggle. overall, again, i think we're seeing a near-term issue. but going forward, i think you're going to be really happy with this company and i think over the long term over the next year or two i think you're going see pretty solid and strong growth. >> all right, jim channing sticking with his shares. we watch them down about 7%. moving on now to major news, president obama making a statement moment ace go on egypt. he said the u.s. will cancel joint military exercises with egypt. to help us understand this, john harwood joins us live now from washington with more. john? >> kelly, it was a minimalist response by the president. you had some people including former advisers of his own saying that the united states should suspend or cut off military aid to the egyptian government. the president did not do that. he said that they were going to cancel those bright star military exercises scheduled for next month and continue to consult with his national security team on other steps. what he was trying to do wa
about the campaign. called "collision 2012, obama versus romney and the future of elections in america." the pendulum is swinging in the republican party now. will they try another establishment type like romney or dole or mccain or christie or jeb bush, or will the party go for one of its tea party heroes like rand paul? here with me now is the author of the great book "collision 2016." dan, let's talk about what you call the subterranean campaign of 2012 and what it offers us in the future. >> we think of the campaign as the campaign we all cover all the time. everything we talk about, every utterance, every gaffe, every debate, every movement. and that's part of politics and in many ways the interesting and enjoyable part of politics, but it's not necessarily the decisive part of politics. there are important and underlying powerful forces that affect every campaign. in 2012, one was the economy. would it be just good enough to allow president obama to win re-election or bad enough to deny re-election. another was voter anger. which direction would it go? a third was the deep red/bl
a lot because they sell a lot in north america and same with international including china. finally for gm, the important thing to focus on here is that asia is increasingly being driven by the chinese market, and they are putting more of an emphasis on china when it comes to vehicle development. it's a big change from the early 2002 to 2003 when they bought dae woo out of south korea. at that time, keep in mind, 10, 12 years ago, they had very little expertise when it came to small cars. they needed dae woo, and that's a shame and gm is looking at how can it lower its cost and the record is that they are considering lowering production there. >> thanks very much. over to josh lipton for a three market flash. >> free acquisition to tell you about beginning with dole fruit, well in the green. agreed to be taken private by chair and ceo who raised his offer and back in june he over it at $12 a share. also, pin pall foo-- pinnacle fs down. both companies are leading players in the growing field of aviation information management. tyler, back to you. >> all right, thank you very much, j

? is this the beginning of the big correction? according to a conversation i had with mcneil curry of bank of america and merrill lynch on futures now, he's saying the yield could go as high as 3% and with that shift we'll see more volatility and potential downside for stocks. >> jackie, thank you very much. let me turn back to you, david. if i'm reading you correctly it's basically you may think that we're going to churn a little bit. may have bumpy times and basically the market will be all right. jackie just talked about some of the sectors doing well and not. if i buy your overall thesis, what sectionors do you like best right now? >> tyler, we like two sectors, tech and financials. in terms of technology, it's been a laggard this year. i think what people have maybe lost site of a little bit is that global profits have not grown in almost two years. u.s. companies have grown earnings, but outside the u.s. it's been a weaker story. that's really weighed on enterprise tech spending. as the global economy recovers we should see a better profit environment for non-u.s. companies. tech companies shou
is destroying the starnt of living of middle class america, destroying their wages and yes, prices go up. look at oil companies. i know a lot of oil stocks and oil companies aren't making a lot of money. look at oil stock s going up. $100 a barrel is not high enough for the oil company toes economically replace depleting reserves. oil prices are much too cheap. inflation driving up the cost of exploring for oil. oil needs to be $150 to $200 a barrel for the oil companies to make decent profits. >> just saying, why is it, if you're saying oil is going to $200, do the four contract reflect an oil price lower than where we are said to? >> the consensus is wrong. wrong about a lot of things. the consensus is wrong about gold. about the bond market. remember what people thought about internet stocks in 1999? or about real estate in 2007? whmp you have a consensus, it's generally wrong. so i'm not looking at what most people think is going to happen to the price of oil. i'm looking at what i believe is going to happen to the price of oil and i think i'm a better barometer than just the consensus opi

america, you had no idea. it angers me because there's a responsibility there to the people investing in these companies, listed on that exchange, and, you know, to make sure they're aware of exactly what was going on. and they were left out. >> i think in fairness to greifeld it would be a question of priorities in his view. probably you have a relatively small team, the job has got to be to ensure that financially nobody gets hurt rather than appearing on cable television i think is the point he's trying to make. >> no question. i absolutely agree with that. i'm not saying that. i'm saying if you're sitting in the middle of the country you have no idea what's locked up and why. the press is the only conduit of information to you. i would say that we had an issue with facebook. we had an issue with the flash crash. we had an issue yesterday with what occurred on the nasdaq, technological issue. what i have an issue with is how it's communiqued to the public and how mom and pop in middle america are actually going to get informed on that and they should be informed because they're the
